Memory Lane

I've definitely been in this marina for too long and started to reminisce about our past life when I came across a memory stick containing old photos (taken over a couple of years prior to living aboard RnR)
We lived in Fairbourne, Gwynedd, North Wales, which for those who don't know the area is on the west coast of Wales, on the opposite side of the Mawddach estuary from Barmouth, approximately 8 miles from Dolgellau.  The house is called Rose Cottage and we spent a very happy 18 years there.
from our bedroom window on the side of the house we can see straight down the Mawddach Estuary, which some say is/should be the 9th wonder of the world! A magnificent view.
taken the last winter we spent there - 2006/7 - we had deep snow that year
the front garden - the roses on the trellis are called Penny Lane purchased from Austin Roses on-line
virgin snow in the back garden
we had many family get-togethers (especially BBQ's) in that garden
and the lounge was big enough for all the neices, nephews and grandchildren to relax in!
the dining room - this is an old one! Adam on the left had his 17th birthday earlier this month!
George and I taken from a high(ish) point overlooking Fairbourne and the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary.  You can see Rose Cottage from here - its the lowest building on the left of the picture (I think you can click on the photo's to enlarge if you so wish of course)

Cregennan Lake - a favourite drive up into the mountains 
our very favourite lake above Llanelltyd where we moved to once Rose Cottage was sold to await the building of Rock 'n' Roll.
Across the Estuary to an intriguing property with a clock tower on the road into Barmouth - I wish I could remember what it was called!!
